Way cool root cellar!

Okay I know I’ve always got some crazy idea cooked up that my husband has to help me either justify (plan, save and eventually possibly DO), magnify (look intently into the pro’s and often con’s of said project) or on occasion build-ify (just do it)!  I’m hoping this might be in the build-ify department.

This way cool earthbag dome can be constructed using mostly materials I have here at the house…

soil

rock

bags (animal food bags in my case)

I can’t wait to try it out!  Hopefully it won’t have to go under the microscope first and I can report back on construction at some point! 🙂

    What a cool, goofy idea! What could youuse a dome like that for? I know you’re saying root cellar. . . it might make a quick-ish, cheap retaining wall. . . Shucks, we’ve got feed bags and lots of dirt/sand around here. . . the wheels are spinning now! Thanks for sharing!

      Guests 🙂 Ha ha! Pets, play house, reading retreat, extra storage, pump house, garden shed, mother in law quarters! Hahaha! I love my mother in law-she would probably help me build her a cute one but it sure is a funny thought.

    Jessie–I always love coming here. You make me smile. Creativity rules, and using materials you have on hand forces one to be creative. 🙂

    Just back from our 11-day motorcycle trip to New England and trying to catch up with everyone …

    Hugs,
    Shirley

Sourdough Update

Many of you have been checking back for results on my sourdough creation. At the moment it is still a science experiment, but a happy, bubbly experiment. Never fear, recipes will be here! I did make a beautiful, moist and delicious loaf of sourdough using yeast and a myriad of other ingredients but I'm still trying to create something more user friendly. Wouldn't it be awesome to have a starter on the counter that you could add 4 things to and have a loaf of bread by dinner? Mmmm! Attempt #1 - rose well but resulted in a dense chewy blob Attempt #2 - rose ok but was thin and lifeless then fell and another dense (not so chewy) blob Attempt #3 - to the dogs! Attempt #4 - A sourdough pancake success see post under what's for breakfast gluten-free goof? Ongoing - I've tried several more times and am going to try a completely different approach on the bread starting this week. (Mar 18). My sourdough is still happy on my counter and it makes great pancakes but it's a lot of work just for pancakes. Keep checking! April Update: She is still kickin and I'm still workin on a yeast free, gluten free sourdough loaf! May Update: My sourdough "pet" has been dried and retired until next baking season. I've traded her in for a hotter model, the BBQ! :)
